News, via Sean Gallagher – writing at Ars Technica, details at least five critical flaws in a multi-vender software package shipped under the moniker ‘Natus Xltek NeuroWorks 8’. Give’s one pause, before hooking up to the machines at your local body shop, eh?

“While attacking an EEG system won’t necessarily harm a patient directly, the vulnerabilities described by Talos could be used to create a persistent presence on hospital networks for a number of malicious purposes, or to execute code that could install malware if the Internet is reachable from the system.” via Sean Gallagher writing at Ars Technica
